Yup, BK Gore has now gradgeeated into the World of Published Authors of Fiction! HooYa!
BK Gore, who is me, has been workin' away at this writing deal for something over four years now.
... and I got to tell you, this part right here, is proving to be the most difficult task of the whole shebang.
I'm truly comfortable sittin' around, tellin' folks stories. Those skilled at the art of a story teller have been people I've admired for a long time.
I can easily tell folks what has worked in my RVing, what has failed; where I've been, where I hope to go... and fill in with a few yarns of my cowboyin' days... but... promoting myself, and the books by BK Gore... is just about the hardest thing I've done... I'm just not comfortable, tootin' my own horn... 'cept when I'm just tellin' yarns and makin' fun...
... this here, is tough for me... Standing up and tellin' folks to shell out hard won cash for my words is just... well, selling myself has always been an obstacle, and "selling yourself" is really the task for all Artists... no matter what their 'Art' is.
That, I think is often the difficulty for "artists" of all sorts... they're good at their art... but the other side of that coin... sellin' their work ... is where they have difficulty.
Most of the artists that I've seen, just aren't into the business side of things... BK Gore don't have any less problem on that score than anyone else in the Art or Writing world!
We'd much rather be doin' our Carving... writing our 'Art'... doin' whatever our art is ... than selling...
Now, I'm not puttin' down those that are successful at it... I wish BK Gore had a lil' more of what they do... but, the simple truth is, it takes a certain amount inflation of your ego, to go out and tell tee total strangers that your words are worth payin' good money for. I'm not sayin' I'm the owner of some small ego :o) ... uh... few would believe that... but... whatever sort of ego it is that makes a good salesman... I've got little of! :o) For me, it's a difficult piece of work!
How-some-ever, at the end of the day... if we don't do the selling, we aren't gonna be doin' much of our art are we? I mean... bottom line... we gotta pay the bills, just like everyone else... so here I am, BK Gore... hat in hand... hopin' somebody will take a look at the fiction I've created, and appreciate it enough, to tell a friend or two, and suggest that they take a look. :o)
I've built three websites, put together a pair of RV books which I just recently converted to ebooks with nice and growing success... and whittled out one lil' book of biographical short stories all of which are available at my "Home" distributor;
Following stories that are currently growing in my laptop should widen my offering into the Suspense genre, so keep checking back here or at one of my distributors for the latest Title to be published!
The Fiction Titles of BK Gore
A Pair of Second Chances
My second Novel is my first foray into the bigger waters of Suspense Fiction. While this still has some flavor of the west, you might even call it Action Suspense with a touch of Romance. I hope you'll give it a try.
